AVILA ALBUJA, Santiago. Videoart basic concepts: Joan Jonas’ case. Índex [online]. 2020, n.9, pp.12-19. ISSN 2477-9199.

This article talks about the basic conceptsin the work of American artist Joan Jonas, key figure in the emergence and development of video art in the 20th century.

This analysis will be emphatic on thinking about the conceptual evolution of two of the artist’s pieces, in which the transition and fusion of various elements related with: body’s representation through image, audiovisual media experimentation and expansion of limits of artcan be noticed. First, the cultural and artistic context will be defined, within the second half of the 20th century. Afterwards, we will refer to the contributions of Jonas in the emergence of video art, and to the conceptual appreciations displayed in her work. At this point, some concerns regarding performance art, conceptual art and video language will be considered.
